Description

A cyanotype is an alternative photographic printing process, like blue prints from architectural plans. I assemble them in a dark room, laying enlarged negatives and sometimes botanicals and found objects onto a surface painted with the light sensitive emulsion. I then I go outside and make a contact print in the sunshine. The paper is then washed and turns Prussian blue.

I picked the poppies in a meadow and carefully transported them back to my art studio, as they are not very durable once picked. I did manage to get 3 prints from them though. These prints are coffee toned because I knew the Prussian blue of the cyanotype would clash with the red ink that I intended for the poppies.
